# When p (x) = (x3 + ax2 + 2x + a) is divided by (x + a), the remainder isA. 0B. aC. –aD. 2a

We have,

(x3 + ax2 + 2x + a)

Let, p (x) = (x3 + ax2 + 2x + a)

And, x + a = 0

x = - a

It is given that, (x + a) is a factor of p (x) so the remainder is equal to p (-a)

p (-a) = (-a)3 + a (-a)2 + 2 (-a) + a

= - a3 + a3 – 2a + a

= - a

Hence, option C is correct
